For the Outstanding Behavior I write what the student did that day to move their clip up. So many times at our school- students go home and say that they made it to the top of the chart, but they don't always know/remember what they did.
For the Oops note I have the student write what it is they did that resulted in their clip moving down. The student also writes what they will do next time to make a better choice. Having students write in their own words/handwriting makes it harder for parents to say their child did nothing wrong. (We all have a couple of those parents I'm sure.)
Currently I only made the clip chart notes for the themes I made the clip charts for.(If I forgot one please let me know.) Since the clip charts have been so popular I will do my best to create clip charts for the rest of themes sometime during the school year. Here's the sample of the Hollywood clip chart notes.
Tomorrow I will be back with an idea for a year long reading incentive for your classroom.
